There's a difference between healthy skepticism/objective critique vs. being dismissive.

Most anti-crypto folks don't have the credentials or business acumen to actually have a healthy constructive discourse.

I'd be glad to debate the particulars with any skeptics but most cannot be bothered to do basic research enough to get comfortable with the topic.

Being skeptical is a perfectly normal reaction to an unproven, speculative item at the time, and the only reason large returns were available was because of the enormous risk and long shot at success. The person who made the thread barely speaks English and is like “lulz by friends makin big money!!!” “Cus rly”. It doesn’t exactly create a good impression of those willing to take the plunge.
Sorting or popping up on the top of my page?

Being skeptical is fine, I was skeptical in 2011 but there is skepticism with knowledge and then over confidence without knowledge. It seems some here still lack the knowledge yet still have the skepticism.

Not in hindsight and not for 10 long years. “Fortune favors the bold” would be more applicable.

When you walk into LA’s Staples Center, oops I mean Crypto.com arena, you’ll realize that.

Yes, there’s plenty of over confidence without knowledge. That’s why by any measure of data provided by the world’s largest banks show that these “investors” (they’re high risk speculators) are young, aggressive, and lack financial education.

Or when I walk into crypto arena or see commercials with Matt Damon telling crypto buyers they need to be bold like the Wright brothers, I know we’re in full blown mania mode.

You don't need knowledge in the system you are trying to displace. I just spent a week at a Crypto conference and met a lot of young people who are light years ahead of the old guard knowledge wise.
